How Long Does it Take to Drown?

by Katrina Cain

Well, you guys asked it, so I will answer it. It takes approximately 2 -3 minutes to lose consciousness and 5-10 minutes to die. Many people who have nearly drowned have permanent brain damage of a result of oxygen deprivation. In the U.S., drowning is the second most common cause of death in people under the age of 14.
